SATs COUNTDOWN!

10 weeks left and counting! And 2 of these are Easter holidays!

Not long left now until SATs. Hope you are all enjoying your booster sessions and not getting too worried about SATs. Please speak to a year 6 teacher if you need any help with anything at all.

Here’s a reminder of our SATs revision tips:

Use the following tips to help you reach your maximum potential:-

1. Choose a place to revise where you will not be distracted.
2. Drink plenty of water. Water stops your brain dehydrating and will help you
concentrate for longer.
3. Get plenty of sleep. If you are tired, you will never perform to the best of your
ability.
4. Take a short break every 20 minutes.
5. If you get stuck on something, come back to it later or ask a teacher / parent to
help.
6. Reward yourself for working hard. It might be playing out, watching a favourite TV
programme or having a snack.
7. Study in short sessions, but often. Don’t spend hours working away!

Happy reading,

Welcome back – week 1 done!

Hello everybody,

I hope you’ve had a good break over Christmas and New Year.  I suppose it seems like a long way away now having been back in school for a week.

Boosters have started, homework has been given out and the hard work is well under way.  Keep up with it all, put in the effort and you will succeed.

Any questions, as ever, please ask either myself, Miss Mooney, Mrs Caseley, Mrs Clarke or Madame Clarke.

Happy New Year!
Mr. Annia

Can you work out these?

1. The sounds of bells ring from the top of the steeple.

2. Small trio of royal men.

3. No noise between 8.00pm and 6.00am

Good luck.

Miss Mooney
